Later on in the thread, Musk said he's looking for "world-class chip designers" and engineers based in Palo Alto, Calif. and Austin, Tex. No formal education is required. Applicants might not even need a high school diploma.

"Educational background is irrelevant, but all must pass hardcore coding test," Musk tweeted. Although, he doesn't say what exactly will be on the test.

Elon Musk also founded SpaceX

Musk may be synonymous with Tesla, but he's also really invested in space exploration. Back in 2002, he founded SpaceX, which is a space exploration corporation that aims to make space travel more accessible and help colonize Mars. 

SpaceX says Mars is a strong candidate for colonization because of a few factors. According to the SpaceX website, Mars is close enough to the sun to get good sunlight and days are a similar length to those on Earth.

However, the SpaceX website also mentions that gravity on Mars is around 38 percent of the Earth's, which would make it much easier to lift heavy objects. 

Elon Musk hasn't publicly supported anyone in the 2020 presidential election

In an interview with the Sway podcast back in September, Elon Musk revealed that while he has advised President Trump on certain issues, he won't reveal who he voted for. "I have spoken to the president about sustainable energy many times and actually there are times when he's been supportive," Musk said.

Musk went on to say that Trump has a lot of support from the oil and gas industries because they're so much bigger than the electric car industry. 

When Musk was asked directly if he supported Trump, he said, "Um …. I, I mean, I'm … to be totally frank, I'm not … I mean, I think … let's just see how the debates go. You know," according to Business Insider.
